From High School To The NFL: Adoree Jackson

Scout digs through the archives to bring you the tape, evaluation and recruitment of USC cornerback and NFL hopeful Adoree Jackson.

High School Analysis:

Jackson is an exceptional athlete who is an Olympic hopeful in the long jump. He had the 4th best jump in the nation as a Soph. He's not simply explosive though; he's flexible and displays terrific balance. He's strong enough to press a receiver at the line of scrimmage and can turn and run with anyone. He shows of his balance with the ball in his hands as he breaks and spins out of tackles before out running defenders. - Scott Kennedy


With just a week until signing day, no one knew where 2014's No. 6 overall prospect, Adoree Jackson would sign. He had taken official visits to  LSUFlorida StateOklahoma and Tennessee but many including Scout's Greg Biggins felt that USC and Florida were the two teams to beat. More than just a football player, track was also of importance to Adoree, who had hoped to qualify for the 2016 Olympics. With track and football in mind, Jackson set a final four of LSU, Florida, USC and UCLA and made his decision to commit to USC on National Signing Day 2014 live on ESPNU.
